  2. Click the Recommendations link in the top right corner.
  3. From the recommendations page, you can view open recommendations, and view previously deferred and ignored recommendations.
  4. To make sure that the recommendations are up-to-date, from the menu select Get Latest.
  5. You can search and filter the recommendations:
    • Click on a column name to sort the recommendations accordingly.
    • Use the search box in the top right corner to filter recommendations.
    • To review and apply, ignore, or defer a recommendation, click on its corresponding row.
